Reading pdf files without Acrobat
|About a year ago we began creating all reports and other printer-friendly output from our Members Only applications as pdf files and opening them for viewing. Most of our users were very pleased with this approach. Because the pdf file format has become a standard, any report can now be easily posted to a website or emailed to a colleague. Moreover all the outputs were searchable in the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Finally, we were still preventing user modification to system-generated reports, as most of our clients' auditors demand. But a few users were dismayed at how slowly the Acrobat Reader opened, and chose to shut this feature off.|
Today, Nick Hodges, newly in charge of the Delphi product line at Borland, pointed out the Foxit Reader. This little app opens with lightening speed to display, search and print pdf files. And its free! Give it a try - even if you're not a Members Only user!
